Reviewer Comments:

This resource provides learners with comprehensive instructions for dissecting a cow eye. Both the instructional handout and the video primer come from the Exploratorium, a science museum in San Francisco, California, and would be appropriate for students in late elementary, middle, or high school classrooms. The instructions are clearly written and each step is illustrated. The companion website includes diagrams and a wonderful video primer which further narrates and demonstrates each of the 13 steps in short 30 – 60 second segments. Although there is no assessment included, this resource is ready for immediate use in the classroom or would provide excellent professional development for educators looking to incorporate a cow eye dissection into their teaching.

I've used these Exploratorium materials in my classroom from grades 3 through 8, and have found them extremely well-organized, clear for students, and conducive to allowing groups of students to work through the dissection at their own pace.
